A raised stretcher course is a method of edging a driveway, Colordrives uses clay block pavers as their quality is superior to most other blocks.

The pavers are laid on a concrete bed and haunched with concrete, they are then cement jointed.

The term raised is used to describe the fact that part of the side of the paver will be visible on the completed driveway.

Using a raised stretcher course has the benefit of defining the outline of a driveway and additionally acts as a water guide to ensure rainfall is directed to the relevant drainage points.

Raised strecher courses also have the advantage of alerting a driver to the fact they have gone off the driveway as apposed to tarmac level edgings.
